This spider has a face that only a spider's mother could love. Click on the pic a few times and you get a bigger view. I find these spiders to be fascinating. To watch something with a teeny brain act in such a sophisticated way is amazing. I never kill them, just occasionally knock down a web that is in the way or use a broom in the garage to get all the webs down from the corners. Once it starts to cool down they all pretty much disappear. With all the spiders that we have some years and all the webs that I have walked through I have never been bitten. This spider has a body a little over an inch long, over 2 inches in diameter overall, so it's pretty big.
